A lot has happened in the context of Champagne since the monk Dom Perignon raced into his cellar to salvage his exploding bottles of wine and yelled out after trying one: "Come quickly! I'm drinking stars!." Whilst Champagne has always been a festive wine it has become a luxury cuvee produced by large companies who believe marketing their wines with glamorous Hollywood faces usurps the actual quality and contents inside the bottle. So it is with our pleasure to recommend to our loyal audience Billecart-Salmon. Established in 1818 by the husband and wife team of Nicolas François Billecart and Elizabeth Salmon, Billecart-Salmon remains one of last family run Champagne Houses producing a style underpinned by finesse, balance and elegance to an endless supply of loyal drinkers the world over. Amongst Billecart’s most loyal fans is the English wine writer Jancis Robinson MW - one of the world’s most admired palates - who after sampling 18 top tier non vintages declared Billecart to be the most impressive.
